BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — Three sets of fraternal twins were born on the same day at a Bozeman, Montana, hospital — adding up to more than half of the hospital’s births that day.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1JLs91n) the first of the trio of twins was born at Bozeman Deaconess Hospital at 7:49 a.m. on July 22. The other two sets followed over the next seven hours, making it the first time in a decade the hospital has seen so many twins born in a day.

First-time parents Dustin and Davya Jackson say twins run in both their families, so it was almost inevitable when they found out they were having both Sonja Ryann and Landon Lee.

Including the three twins, 11 babies were born at the hospital that day.
